Dr. Tony Alessandra is two speakers in one... a professor and a performer, or as one client put it - “he delivers college lectures in a comedy store format.”
Alessandra offers audiences the opportunity to enjoy themselves while learning practical, immediately applicable skills that positively impact their relationships with prospects, customers and co-workers.
He focuses on how to create instant rapport with prospects, employees & vendors; how to convert prospects and customers into business apostles who will “preach the gospel” about your company and products; and how to out-market, out-sell and out-service the competition.
Dr. Tony Alessandra helps companies build customers, relationships, and the bottom-line. Companies learn how to achieve market dominance through specific strategies designed to outmarket, outsell and outservice the competition.
